Taxanation (for Taxation)
We all know from grade school that you can't allow taxanation without represetation (deliberate reference to another word on our lists). Fortunately, today's word is on the lowest level of the main list at http://faculty.quinnipiac.edu/libraries/tballard/typoscomplete.html, meaning that the word had only one hit in OhioLINK at the time of its discovery. Furthermore, there is only one taxanation in WorldCat - a 1951 title by the "National Association of Manofacturers." Somebody was having a bad day when this record was added to OCLC. In an all-time record, there is only one reference to taxanation in Google that is actually a typo. Of the four references in Google, two refer to our lists, and one is a scientific article that may or may not be legitimate.
